In Tim LaHaye—creator and co-author of the world-renowned Left Behind series—and Craig Parshall’s Edge of Apocalypse unabridged audio download, Joshua Jordan’s new weapons defense system will secure America against an array of new enemies, including a nuclear strike on New York City by North Korea. But global forces are mounting and corrupt government leaders will go to any extreme to prevent an impending economic catastrophe. As world events begin setting the stage for the “end of days” foretold in Revelation, Jordan must weigh the personal price he must pay to save the nation he loves.

This isn't your typical Christian novel

This book was authored by the writers of the left behind series. Don't let that fool you though, this isn't a sermon disguised by action packed wrapping paper.

This book is fast paced and entertaining. Yes they talk about god, yes they pray. But let's be honest, most of us in these types of situations would be calling out to a higher power so don't fault the characters for that.

When I first started listening to this book the narrator's voices threw me off a bit. It's deep, really deep. It has a distinction to it that I wasn't sure would translate to other character voices well. But I was wrong. It takes a little warm up time but eventually the narrator finds his groove and I was very clearly able to distinguish the different characters. Also, his accent for Russian and middle eastern characters, along with those from Brooklyn is flawless. Job well done!

There is a lot a action in this book, immediately from the start. There's no warm up, get to know you period for the characters. You see these characters in their most vulnerable and it's refreshing. I like that my opinion of the characters is crafted from their reaction to certain events rather than their backstory.

This is part of a series so the ending is a cliffhanger. But that only made me more excited to listen to the next book.

Give this book a chance. Don't let the Christianity part stop you from enjoying a really great story!

Pretty Good ... but

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No..there are better ones out there.

What did you like best about this story?

The suspense. Good plot.

What does Stefan Rudnicki bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He was ok. Competent.

Any additional comments?

A bit too much "born again" Christian mentality for my taste. Got in the way of the story.

The storyline was engaging. It had very applicable scripture and prophesy to share with others. Looking forward to reading the rest in series.

good story but just a bit too much god bothering

Loved the story,and a the little bits of fact in between parts are scary. The focus of "getting saved" as an answer to everything is a bit naive. Having said that well worth a listen.

Born again? You'll probably love it.

I wish I had checked the author before buying ... the story is pretty good, but for me, the religiosity - and a very born again religiosity which I personally don't find interesting or attractive, detracted. I'm guessing I bought this in one of those "first books in series" sales and I won't be buying any more. I loved Stefan Rudnicki's narration as usual. It was good enough I listened to the whole thing; it has to be pretty awful for me to stop mid-way through, but the born again stuff ... and the view of politics ... made me cringe too often to really enjoy.

Didn't Grab Me

I read some of the other reviews and I have to say that I have no problem with the "religious" side of the book because I know the authors are both evangelical Christians with a pretrib worldview.

With that said, I was disappointed about the quality of this book. I have been a fan of Craig Parshall's novels since his first book The Resurrection File, which I still think, is by far, one of his best books. I have never been a fan of Tim LaHaye and haven't read one single book of his in the Left Behind series. The reason is I figure if everyone thinks they are so great, most likely I won't like it, and generally I'm right.

Out of the 109 books I have here in my Audible acct I don't think I have ten that are fiction, so to actually purchase a novel is something I don't do often, and in this case, i bought this because of Craig Parshall, not La Haye.

I do like the style of writing and I think the story was good, but it was just missing something. I wasn't crazy about the narrators voice, that could be part of it, but I've heard Craig do other chapters of narration before on his books, and he would be an awful narrator if he had to read the book.

With that said, I will buy the next book they put out, which is due out in June 11 (I believe) and it's called Thunder of Heaven. Maybe it will be better... I hope. I have all of Parshall's books and believe that sometimes quality begins to lack especially after an author has been in the limelight awhile and is known.

And since this book was not remotely close to a run away best seller, we'll see what happens with the next book. I pray it's better.

Starts good but then ...

What disappointed you about Edge of Apocalypse?

The Story stats of very well but I stopped after one cd and that happens very rarely! There is too much religious stuff involved in it which spoils a good Story.

What could Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

They should have left out the religious plot and thus turned it into a good Thriller.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator did a good Job - nothing against him!

What character would you cut from Edge of Apocalypse?

The kernels wife and son - as far as it goes for CD1 - I do not know what Comes later but These two were too religious.

Any additional comments?

A good start going down hill very fast!

Good start, but then...

What did you like best about Edge of Apocalypse? What did you like least?

I like reading an action novel without all the typical profanity. The book had a great start, but seemed to get slow and very drawn out, and with too many characters.

Would you be willing to try another book from Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall ? Why or why not?

Yes.

What aspect of Stefan Rudnicki’s performance would you have changed?

His voice sometimes sounded a little robotic.
